Ok, so this is another what to get list. You don't like it? Go on and rate this list a 1, I coudn't care less (it seems that 1 or 2 is the most frequent rating my stuff get), or go rompere le palle to some TRADE list.
But best of all, you could add some comment/game to this list, since it seems I can finish my collection for some time with these games. Some of them will be got in every case, others are in doubt. I got some money from some boardgames selling, so... where do I put these 75 euro?
Please write praises or pile crap on these games.

This one goes for 79 dollars. With strong euro and such I could get this for a total of 70 euro.
Why get this? Because I got Europa Universalis and I was a bit diasppointed. Not for the playability: I know it's a hell of a game. But for the quality. Counters are hardly readable, maps are pixelated and very frail, rules are photocopied...
Maybe EoTMA could:
1) Fill a gap in the 800 AD - 1500 AD that Europa Universalis don't cover;
2) Be more playable (or just playable) even solitaire;
3) Be more visually appealing.
Should I get this or just stick with Europa Universalis?
A note: Boulder Games has this for 65 dollars, anyone knows the shipping fees for Europe (they didn't anser me when I asked)?

My #1 observed. I like the idea of having such a good looking game, with great and realistic mechanics, lots of cardboard and wood. It could become a classic.
It can be played in 2, even if it's very long.
I have La Città, but I don't liked it a lot: I feel it's not an actual simulation. Reviews of Antiquity are mixed, but 75% favorable.
Could get this for 80 euro from Germany.

This is enticing for evenings with non player friends. My dount are that reading the rules it seems very very similar to TIcket to Ride, which I (and my fellow players) didn't like, I felt it was mechanic and repetitive, too light and without deep.
THis seems to have some interesting variations. Is it language indipendant? It's not playable with 2 so it's the last choice.
Could get this for 24 euro + shipping from Germany.

I love C:the Castle. My girlfiend loves it too. But it seems this is just a variation. Read the rules and they didn't impress me. It costs 25 euro, so maybe it's just a Castle doppleganger for me?
Pro: playble with many.

I will get this without your advice. I'm just waiting for the preorders to get nearer 500 because I don't want to wait too eagerly.

I don't have bidding games, but I think Modern Art sucks (tried the computer version). This could be intriguing and easier, if not for the theme.
I don't know how does it cost, neither where to get this in Germany (advice?).

This costs a lot, I don't have players for this elephant, and it's a wet dream for me that I love WWII theatre and I'm starting to love block games. It costs like 99 euro?!? If my girlfriend discovers what I could spend for this, she could rape me in the a** with all the wooden blocks. Where to get for a good price?
